Bridgemaster V Concrete Mixers that utilize a Hendrickson Trailer Axle are being recalled by McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing because of a potential issue with the square axle cross tube. 978 of these vehicles could suffer from an issue wherein tightening between the axle and the fender isn’t sufficient to ensuring safe usage. A crack or outright failure of the mounting bracket could thus lead to the fender falling off the vehicle and into the road, compromising the safety of those automobiles trailing the mixer. Owners should hear from the company once the recall starts at the beginning of next month. Free repairs will be carried out by mechanics as needed.
